Oh Julianna

October 5th, 2011

Julianna Barwick‘s experimental loop-based compositions replicate the textures of a large choral group using only her voice, a loop station and some occasional instrumentation. Barwick starts her songs quietly, usually with a single refrain, and then builds the pieces up until she’s created a complicated, weaving sonic architecture. ( Part of her Asthmatic Kitty bio ). Now with ‘The Matrimony Remixes‘ which takes Julianna Barwick’s early 2011 release, The Magic Place, and puts two of its tracks into the hands of good friends. Previously having crossed paths with Julianna while both working on remixes of Radiohead‘s “Reckoner,” Philadelphia-based Diplo teams up with producer Lunice to provide some deep sea beats to “Vow.” Brooklyn neighbor to Barwick, “dear friend,” and label-mate Roberto Lange takes “Vow” into the inner space of clouds. Long-time Barwick friend Bryan Doring of Alias Pail drumbreaks “Prizewinning.” Brooklyn/Boston-based sisters of the cosmos Prince Rama closes out this outstanding EP. Purchase and download HERE

Ikue Mori

May 20th, 2011

Back in the 80`s my partner and I owned a recording studio in Brooklyn, and we were deeply involved with the Hip Hop scene and the experimental downtown crowd. It was mainly Yoram Vazan, my partner, who was and still is an accomplished mixing engineer, that was working with musicians such as Elliott Sharp, Arto Lindsey, John Zorn, Fred Frith and many others. One of the musicians who is still making cutting edge innovative music using tools such as Max MSP to experiment with live as you could hear here is Ikue Mori, who had moved to NYC back in 1977 from her native city of Tokyo, and formed DNA, and has been experimenting with drum machines triggering samples and sounds and manipulating it live ever since. This is a piece with Julianna Barwick on vocal manipulation.
